👟👟👟👟👟👟👟 If you have ever been part of a long distance or miles race then you know that feeling when you look ahead and see the finishing line. Definitely your muscles will be aching and you are probably breathing through your mouth taking in as much air as you can. What keeps you going is that hope of finishing your race soon.
At the beginning of a race when the whistle goes off, all runners take off at once each still full of energy and the determination to win the race. Soon some will drop off the race for many reasons ranging from not been fit to endure the pain or simply just giving up.
Hope you haven’t given up on yourself and goals yet? Remember this journey of the year 2017 is your own race. There is no need to compare your successes or achievements with that of others.
Time to count your blessings as some other persons unfortunately didn’t make it this far but you made it. Be grateful and list your blessings, achievements and successes. Every little thing counts, celebrate your small and big successes.
I have so much I am grateful for that listing them will take the whole day but here is a few:
- For the times when I failed and learned a few lessons.
- For close doors though painful but led to new and beautiful opportunities.
- For strength to go on even when I am weak.
- My children’s school promotion and ability to learn and apply knowledge.
- My husband’s new milestone of owing his own school and building his business.
- Gift of friends and family
- Gift of work
- Gift of life and health
- The gift of blogging 😀
- And so much more
So here is the thing... You made it this far, have faith; have hope. All will end well in spite of the unpleasant experiences.
Happy New month!!
